When talking about the relative importance or value of art, why is art set against the things we need to survive? Because you can’t eat a painting, does that mean it’s a useless fetish object for the bourgeoisie? Artists are the first to admit that if there was a choice between funding a hospital or an art museum, we’d all choose the hospital… but… what if art could save lives? HELP (Is anyone an artist?) is a mobile performance which will explore what it looks like when art tries to save a life.
Crybaby was founded in Berlin in 2018 by Samantha Bohatsch and Annelies Kamen as a curatorial duo and project space. Since then the program has expanded to include projects in other locations and with other collaborators. Crybaby is artist run and led and focuses on collective exhibitions and events that allow artists to work in site specific, vernacular and/or ephemeral ways. Low hurdles, high returns.
